Charles Amirkhanian introduces the little known “Divertimento for Orchestra,” composed jointly by the two Italian avant-garde composers, Bruno Maderna & Luciano Berio. Amirkhanian came upon this rare recording when rummaging through the archives of the West German Radio in Cologne, while on an exchange program with the Dutch radio station VPRO, in late 1973. The work is in three movements, the first, “Dark Rapture Crawl” by Maderna, and the second and third, “Scat Bag “ and “Rhumba-Ramble” by Berio. This is a recording on a 1958 performance by the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Bruno Maderna.
